Erectile Dysfunction Treatment in Gurgaon

Erectile dysfunction, commonly referred to as impotence, is the inability to get an erection in the penis to allow penetration for intercourse. While occasional inability to get a proper erection may be attributed to stress or lack of stimulation; prolonged dysfunction may be an underlying sign of poor circulation, weakened heart health or other medical conditions which may require urgent attention. Get in touch with Manipal Hospitals if seeking erectile dysfunction treatment in Gurgaon. 

Refractory erectile dysfunction is the inert phase one experiences right after an orgasm where a person feels disinterested in sexual activity and physical stimulation fails to insight much of a response or excitation in the person. While in general, healthy individuals experience refractory erectile dysfunction only for a short period lasting a few minutes or hours, prolonged refractory erectile dysfunction may be a sign of stress, emotional dissatisfaction, and lack of self-esteem or impaired circulation system.

Usually, working on the underlying cause like stress or relationship dynamics can help improve erectile dysfunction. Other times, the body may be in need of serious medical intervention or treatment for some refractory conditions. Consultation with a urologist can be of help in such scenarios.

What causes an erection?

Erection is a physical response in the male body to the stimulus of sexual arousal. For a man to get an erection blood must rush into the erection chambers in the penis as nerves release chemicals that increase blood flow. The blood pressure in the penis causes an erection. 

This erection results from a complex operation involving synergies with the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, blood vessels and muscles. An anomaly in any of these areas might result in erectile dysfunction.

When should one meet a urologist for an erectile dysfunction treatment in Gurgaon?

A persistent inability to get an erection even after active stimulation and mental state of arousal, trouble keeping an erection, premature ejaculation or even a reduced desire for sex should be a cause to seek help from a urologist.

What are the causes of refractory erectile dysfunction?

Some physical causes of a refractory erectile dysfunction are heart disease, obstructed blood vessels, high cholesterol or blood pressure levels, diabetes, low testosterone or even sleep disorders, and smoking. 

On the other hand, some psychological causes of erectile dysfunction are stress, anxiety and depression.

What are the Treatments available for Erectile Dysfunction?

The best way to prevent erectile dysfunction is to lead a healthy lifestyle balancing nutrition and rest. Regular consultations with a urologist can help maintain optimum function and health. For optimum treatment of a condition, one must be able to identify the root cause of the trouble before going forward. We will look at several erectile dysfunction diagnosis options available in Gurgaon.

An effective erectile dysfunction treatment in Gurgaon starts with a diagnosis of the causes of erectile dysfunction; these tests might include:

  • Physical examination of penis and nerves

  • Blood and urine tests

  • Ultrasound of penile blood vessels

  • Psychological screening

 Based on the diagnosis of the urologist, the treatment line could be as follows:


Exercises like aerobics and kegel have shown positive results in improving erectile dysfunction in some patients. Call Manipal Hospitals to connect with experienced urologists in Gurugram. Discuss all your concerns related to erectile dysfunction treatment with them and get the best advice. 


Psychological causes like depression, stress and anxiety are the top causes of erectile dysfunction. A counselling session helps patients overcome trauma and lead a healthy sex life.

Oral Drugs

The drugs known as PDE type-5 inhibitors increase the blood flow in the penis. These drugs are taken an hour or two before indulging in sexual activity to ensure optimum blood flow to the desired regions for erection. A patient should take a pill only after consulting a urologist. Viagra, a commercially available SDE type-5 drug, is one of the most common oral drugs globally for maintaining erections over a prolonged period, there are better drys also available now with lesser side effects. 

An increased blood flow might cause side effects like muscle aches, headache or indigestion and in severe cases might lead to cardiovascular discomfort. Therefore, prior consultation with a urologist is a must before taking off-the-counter stimulants. 

Penis Pump

A vacuum erection device is a tube placed over the penis that sucks out the air to pull blood into the penis.

As the blood flows to bring the erection, a tension ring at the base of the penis holds the erection. Remove the vacuum device, and the erection lasts long enough to have sex. Some side effects could be bruising of the penis. Check with your urologist if a Penis Pump is effective for you. 

Penile Implants

During an erectile dysfunction treatment, your urologist might recommend surgery to place implants on both sides of the penis. These implants allow a patient to control the time and duration of an erection. Surgery can be complicated and prior evaluation of the patient's vitals is required to ensure patient safety and improve the success rate of surgery.

A urologist in Gurugram recommends a penile implant only when other methods fail to work as surgery has several complications.
